Road Works Road Works

Maranoa Regional Council is continually working to upgrade and maintain the region’s vast transportation network. This network contains footpaths, kerb and channelling, bridges and over 6,500 km of roads. Some of the works needed to keep these facilities up to standard include:

  • Re-constructing roads and footpaths
  • Street sweeping
  • Line marking
  • Grading gravel roads
  • Repairing bridges

Council’s prime objective is to provide these services at a standard acceptable to the community in the most time efficient and cost effective manner.

Road works fall under three different categories including Capital Works (Major road works that upgrade existing roads, footpaths or drainage), Maintenance Repairs (Works necessary to maintain the expected high standard of roads and infrastructure throughout the region) and Resource Sector Works (Road upgrades due to increased traffic movements and expansion of the road network required for the coal seam gas industry).
